Ets GM Brodie Van Wagenen has said»come get us» about the group’s opponents from the NL East this season. When it comes to the Mets’ chances to win the World Series, they are on fairly equal footing.
Even the Mets, Nationals, and Braves have 16/1 odds to win the World Series, while the Phillies — strangely — have 10/1 odds, according to BetOnline.
BetOnline must be gambling that the Phillies land one of the megastar free agents still on the market — Bryce Harper or even Manny Machado. But landing one of these players may not even vault that the Phillies to the top of the division.
The Marlins, who are anticipated to become among the worst teams in baseball this year, have 150/1 chances.
Baseball Prospectus currently projects the Nationals to win 89 games, with the Mets at 88, and Braves and Phillies both at 85.
The Yankees have the best odds to win the title, at 6/1, followed by the Red Sox and Astros at 7/1, and Dodgers at 9/1. The worst chances belong to the Orioles, that are 250/1.
